    Awesome Robert, thank you. I may incorporate the idea into my half finished 7x17. I see no reason I cannot come up with something.

    Barry, That would be great to see. I love having a vertical back. For one your movements are all the same as opposed to turning these large banquet style cameras on their side. Also you don't have all the stress on those bed rails when its turned on its side. I have had nightmares of the front and rear bed rails ripping out of the bed. My wisner is a light weight expedition model 8x20 which makes it even more suspect of something not holding. I shoot more in the vertical position than I do in the horizontal. ( Well at least lately I have). But having to transport two backs and two front standards is like hauling two cameras. Now I will go to the site first and see what format I want to shoot in a few days before I actually go back with the camera. This eliminates having to take the other back. But there will come a time when that will not be an option. It has already happened. Being able to use one back and one front standard and change from horizontal to vertical without turning the whole camera would be the ultimate application. Keep me posted on what you come up with. Thanks

    Sorry that should have read..." Also you don't have all the stress on those bed rails as opposed to the stress it gets when its turned on its side."

    Jim,

    Where in So. Cal. are you located. I'm in La Quinta (Palm Springs). If we're close enough, perhaps we could get together when we're both done and compare our Creations.

    Dan, I'm in 'cool" Ventura. It would be great to get together to look at each others creations. My "real job" is in outside construction sales and I travel all over So.Cal. My territory does not go out that far east( I get the central coast all the way up to Monterey; I know what a bummer!) but it would be great to get together during the construction phase to swap idea, designs, head off potential problems etc. I'd have no problem coming out there if we can get our schedules together. You can e mail me if you want. jimfitzgerald101@hotmail.com.

    Stay Focused...or Soft Focused!!

    Jim
